Korver scored all 14 of his first-half points in the second quarter, sinking 4 of 5 from behind the arc.

"I felt good the last week or so shooting the ball in practice, just haven't gotten good looks in the games," Korver said. "Sometimes, you just have to see the ball go in."

Randolph scored 16 first-half points, including 12 in the second quarter. But the other Grizzlies struggled shooting, spending most of the half in the 25 percent range.

The Bulls shot 56 percent in the first half.

Before the game, baseball All-Star Willie Mays and NBA Hall of Famers Willis Reed and Lenny Wilkens were honored with the National Civil Rights Museum Sports Legacy Award, in remembrance of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday. King was assassinated in Memphis in April 1968.

Notes: Rose's triple-double was the first for the Bulls since Kirk Hinrich's on Dec. 14, 2007 ... Mayo entered the game making just 10 of his previous 44 shots. He went 7 of 14 in the game ... Memphis came in with a 4-4 record on Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday ... Chicago's previous win in Memphis was on Dec. 15, 2004
